Call for Review: XML Signature 1.1, XML Encryption 1.1, XML Signature
Properties Proposed Recommendations Published

   24 January 2013 | Archive


   The XML Security Working Group has published three Proposed
   Recommendations today:

     * XML Signature Syntax and Processing Version 1.1. This
       document specifies XML digital signature processing rules
       and syntax. XML Signatures provide integrity, message
       authentication, and/or signer authentication services for
       data of any type, whether located within the XML that
       includes the signature or elsewhere. Comments are welcome
       through 25 February.
     * XML Encryption Syntax and Processing Version 1.1. This
       document specifies a process for encrypting data and
       representing the result in XML. The data may be in a
       variety of formats, including octet streams and other
       unstructured data, or structured data formats such as XML
       documents, an XML element, or XML element content. The
       result of encrypting data is an XML Encryption element that
       contains or references the cipher data. Comments are
       welcome through 25 February.
     * XML Signature Properties. This document outlines proposed
       standard XML Signature Properties syntax and processing
       rules and an associated namespace for these properties. The
       intent is these can be composed with any version of XML
       Signature using the XML SignatureProperties element. These
       properties are intended to meet code signing requirements.
       Comments are welcome through 25 February.

   The group also published six Working Group Notes:

     * Functional Explanation of Changes in XML Encryption 1.1
       provides a summary of non-editorial changes in XML
       Encryption 1.1 from the XML Encryption Recommendation.
     * XML Security 1.1 Requirements and Design Considerations,
       summarizes scenarios, design decisions, and requirements
       for the XML Signature and Canonical XML specifications, to
       guide ongoing W3C work to revise these specifications.
     * XML Security Algorithm Cross-Reference, summarizes XML
       Security algorithm URI identifiers and the specifications
       associated with them.
     * XML Security Generic Hybrid Ciphers, specifies an XML
       syntax and processing rules for generic hybrid ciphers and
       key encapsulation mechanisms and reserves identifiers for
     * XML Security RELAX NG Schemas, provides non-normative RELAX
       NG schemas in the compact syntax as well as the XML syntax.
     * XML Signature Best Practices, collects best practices for
       implementers and users of the XML Signature specification,
       some of which to improve security and mitigate attacks.

Last Call: Touch Events version 1

   24 January 2013 | Archive


   The Web Events Working Group has published a Last Call Working
   Draft of "Touch Events version 1." The Touch Events
   specification defines a set of low-level events that represent
   one or more points of contact with a touch-sensitive surface,
   and changes of those points with respect to the surface and any
   DOM elements displayed upon it (e.g. for touch screens) or
   associated with it (e.g. for drawing tablets without displays).
   It also addresses pen-tablet devices, such as drawing tablets,
   with consideration toward stylus capabilities. Comments are
   welcome through 14 February. Learn more about the Rich Web
   Client Activity.


IndieUI: Events - New Work for Mobile and More

   22 January 2013 | Archive


   The IndieUI Working Group today published a First Public
   Working Draft of "IndieUI: Events 1.0" - Events for User
   Interface Independence. IndieUI defines a way for different
   user interactions to be translated into simple events and
   communicated to web applications. (For example, if a user wants
   to scroll down a page, they might use their finger on a touch
   screen, or click a scroll bar with a mouse, or use a scroll
   wheel, or say 'scroll down' with a voice command. With IndieUI,
   these are all sent to the web app as simply: scroll down.)
   IndieUI will make it easier for web applications to work in a
   wide range of contexts — different devices (such as mobile
   phones and tablets), different assistive technologies (AT),
   different user needs. With IndieUI, web application developers
   will have a uniform way to design applications that work for
   multiple devices and contexts. Comments on this Draft are
   encouraged by 22 February 2013. Learn more from the IndieUI
   Overview and the IndieUI: Events expands user interface
   interactions blog post; read about the Web Accessibility
   Initiative (WAI).
